I am in between bikes, but my last one was a matte blue Z750S. I called her Mirage. :) It suited the paint colour and it sounded like a chic cool name.

I'll be naming mine Scarlet most likely because its red and reminds me of a red dragon from a book I once read.

^Welcome to TMW, Kawigirl! I'm guessing the bike in your avatar is not the soon-to-be-named Scarlet?

i name everything! kind of silly that way- i've got roxy, the 72 honda cl175, she's red and it fit the 70's thing for me. the new one, 83 ascot, hasn't been named yet. need to get to know her better!
i've also got betty, the 94 civic art car, geraldine, the 86 reliant wagon art car, and zippy, the 71 dodge dart 4 door. zippy was named after the original working name for the dart, the dodge 'zipp' soo glad they went with 'dart'!

My baby doesn't have a name yet. I just got her three days ago and I've only ridden her once. She'll for sure get a name though, because I name everything.

My car is named Stella. So when I'm upset with her, I can go "Stelllllllllla!"
My scooter that I had when I was 15 was named Louis.
My bicycle is named Steven.

My 86 Honda Rebel 450cc is defiantly a girl. I'll have a name for her soon. :)

A friend of mine (male), used to have a kawasaki called Boris. Not sure why it was called that, but I always thought it was a cool name. :lol:

I named my car Stella because when I got her I was in a play called "Rebel Without a Cause" and it had a reference to "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof." It was the "Steeeeelllllllaaaa!" line, obviously. Some friends and I were on our way to rehearsal and she was running really low on gas, someone went "Steeeeeeeellllllllaaa!" and the name stuck.

Louis and Tobias were just names I liked at the time. I have to pick a perfect name for my newest, bestest, form of transport.

My bike is Cream Puff (my husband loves to pick on my bike because it's a small 250 Rebel and it's white). Blah!

I have never named any object before but my Kawasaki Vulcan got named Zena. I joked about naming it Xena after the Warrior Princess....the name stuck...but I spell it Zena so as not infringe on any copyrights anywhere...or just to be different.

Mine is kinda simple. Haven't really thought much more about it, and my sister heard me say this once, so it has just kind of stuck....but I call mine "My Girl"

I was told never to give a vehicle a serious name, but I did it anyway.

She's called Moira. T'was fate, anyway, and she changed my life.
Ooooooh. Shiny!
